inspired by videos from manring & lawson on the web, i decided to buy an e-bow.
i know it is not made specifically for bass, but i maybe there are some workarounds to help me use it.
first, what about strings? usually my gauge is .45, is it too heavy for the ebow?
second, is it a good idea to mod the ebow so i can increase its output and make it stronger to vibrate the bass strings properly?
any other advice?
I find I'm able to get what I'm looking for from the Ebow without any modifications and the ones I use are right out of the box. Although I suppose it works a bit faster on light gauge strings, I've had good results with all the strings I've tried, including hefty B strings. As with any technique, I think understanding and sensitivity are very helpful. I try to align the Ebow as carefully as I can in every angle and along the length of the string to get the sound I want. Once you get the hang of it, it really is a lot of fun. Good luck!
